You see my smile
In the hall as you pass by
You know the forgiving blue of my eyes
What you won’t ever see won’t ever haunt you
So you don’t ask
Because all you want is that smile
Oh if you would only ask
If you only gave a second look
A questioning look
But you only see what you see because
There is no wonder to what might you really be looking at
You live in a place where light
Shines only where You shine it
With no wonder what may live or die in the Dark places
Yet all you see is a smile that is a light
And blue forgiving eyes
That tell you its ok that you hurt me
Because I live under my own light
And I will not see what you hide
In the shadow under your hand
So you smile back and pass me by
By and by

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
